Situated on the top of a small hill, 155metres above sea level and overlooking the magnificent scenery which surrounds the city of Volterra, the villa was built in the nearby town of Fabbrica by one of the noble families of the grand Duchy of Tuscany.
Volterra is surrounded by olive groves and vineyards and has not lost the the authentic aura typical of the whole of Tuscany. The village developed around the original tower and sronghold and one of the villas in the area is Villa Il Borgo. It dates back to the 18 hundreds and is in the elegant Liberty style of the period. It was restructed many years ago , maintaining the original architectural characteristics. Furnished with extremely good taste with antique period furniture and ornaments, the villa has a particular elegance, enriched by precious decorations, paintings and the original vaulted ceilings .
A large lodge has a dining table and chairs for “al fresco” dining, and divans under a pergola with a hundred year old wisteria. From here you can admire the vineyards and olive groves as far as the city of Volterra. By means of another stone staircase we go down to the garden, protected by an ancient wall for privacy, to the panoramic swimming pool (12×4 metres by 1.40 deep). It has a hydromassage area, divans and umbrellas. The shops of Fabbrica are within walking distance.
